Phil is back from a weekend excursion to Catalina and regales with tales of his trip. Dean previews his forthcoming trips to London, Los Angeles, Japan and Europe. Many different Netflix shows starring comedian John Mulaney get discussed, and his work ranging from stand-up to sketch to performance art gets analyzed. Three recent movies also get analyzed: the “found footage” horror favorite Late Night with the Devil, the Ian McShane-starring indie thriller American Star, and a modern classic from France, The Taste of Things. Finally, Hollywood giant Roger Corman gets remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”.

 

Two weeks shy of their 17th anniversary show, Dean is in Washington D.C. and Phil is in “The Hub of Silicon Valley”, and via the magic of podcasting and broadcasting, they bring you this week’s show, featuring discussions about silent film classics, the Japanese art of the Benshi, a ground-breaking and star-studded new production of “MacBeth”, current iterations of “Star Wars” and “Star Trek” on the small screen, a genre-bending private detective series on Apple TV+, and hilarious stories about airports and Dean’s efforts to give his dogs an Instagram presence.
